IMG_5082We woke up to the coldest temperature of the Winter so far with the mercury down to minus 2.3 deg C and the canal was frozen all the way across.

IMG_5087It was only thin cat ice and by mid morning it had all gone. With daily temperatures starting to drop and the wind-chill making it feel like near zero we will stay here at Cowroast for an extra day or two. With the temperature inside Inca averaging 23 deg C and with good TV and Internet we are as snug as a bug in a rug.

  1. It's looking very chilly! Good to know you are warm and snug inside the boat. Wet, warm and grey here in most of NZ today - we blame the Aussies as they send us all the cr*p weather! Cheers, Marilyn

    1. Hi Marilyn, although it's cold it's also a great time on the canals, it's like we have them all to ourselves . We can go through bridges without slowing down as hardly any other boats are moving plus no queuing for the service points. Mind you we both like the summer sun...ps got good sun today and with panels at full tilt we are getting 7 amps...not bad for December
